Now that you’ve spent most of the last few months indoors, you may have noticed opportunities to improve your home. One of the easiest ways to add a new spark to your home is to spice up your windows. Below are some of the most popular window dressing ideas.
Working in More Minimalism
A cluttered space is well known for making people feel more stressed and anxious, so changing it up and working in more minimalism into a room can make all the difference.
Aside from physically removing items you feel are cluttering up your space, you can also make a room feel less tight by swapping out your current curtains. Use lightweight curtain weaves and soft lines that evoke a sense of ease for the best effect.
Alternatively, you can also hang up floor-to-ceiling curtains that float or just touch the floor for another way to embrace minimalism.
Make Working at Home Less Oppressive
While the pandemic has certainly been terrible in many aspects, it has also helped many people realize how much they enjoy working from home. In fact, some people have even shifted to working from home permanently.
Whether you’re set up at home temporarily or are getting dug-in for work at home, a space that enables you to be productive is important. Natural light can be a large factor in this. Consider hanging full-length curtains in a colour that’s easy on the eyes. For example, light green, or soft yellow or beige are great picks for making a home office feel less oppressive.
Layer Your Window Treatments
Sometimes one just isn’t enough. Doubling up on your window treatments by adding another set of curtains or drapes in front or behind existing ones can be a perfect way to customize how much light you’re letting in.
It also offers opportunities for blending colours in addition to functionality.
Trade Out Drapes for Blinds and Shades
Blinds and shades have actually been trending in home decorating. Not only are there many different options to choose from, but some of them offer additional aspects of customization too. For instance, roman shades can be made from a wide selection of fabrics to add a focal point to any room based on their pattern and texture.
Add More Tech
Finally, working more smart technology into homes has become increasingly popular and windows treatments are no exception. Adding onto the trend of using blinds and shades you can get motorized blinds and shades that work with smart speakers so all you need to do is say the “magic words” and your window treatments immediately roll up or down.
You don’t have to spend copious amounts of money on furniture to add more life to your home. Consider using any of the aforementioned window dressing ideas in your home to add that perfect complementary element.
